I'm surprised we don't already have an appropriate status for this, 
considering how common it is. Calling this NOTABUG would match at least 
one other major Bugzilla instance, and is nice and short. 
Alternatively, we could call it EXPECTED BEHAVIOR. BEHAVES AS DESIGNED 
seems a bit long.

Like Simon, I currently use the existing MOVED status to indicate this 
("Moved" to external tracker), although it's not a perfect fit if I 
simply tell the reporter to report elsewhere (in that case, it really 
means "needs to be moved"). If we want to add another status for this, 
we should look for a simpler name.
